Description

The new design uses double-shielded low noise toroidal transformers in external supply

The new design uses double-shielded low noise toroidal transformers in an external supply connected via aviation-grade circular connectors using silver over oxygen-free copper. The power supply is dual mono with two transformers with lower radiated and mechanical noise. Noise is the most prominent part of THD+N at low levels, so by lowering noise we get better resolution and dynamics.

The gain circuitry continues to use our favorite transistors from Toshiba but has a larger, higher biased, output stage like the Xs Preamp, and includes auto bias.

The larger output stage makes longer, and multiple cable runs easier to drive and gives us the advantage of simplifying our single-ended output circuitry while increasing performance.

The volume control is a single stage instead of two stages and has more range; it is quieter and more accurate. This is the same volume control as used in the XP-30.

Overall this makes for a quieter, more neutral, musical, and versatile control center for your system.

The XP-22 measures spectacularly well — but it really stands out sonically.

Pass Labs

Pass Laboratories, Inc. was founded in 1991 by Nelson Pass, who began developing a unique prototype out of his shop at home. That prototype, a single-ended Class A amplifier, became what many acclaimed as the “amplifier of the decade.” Since its initial design, Pass Labs has become one of the most prestigious brands in the audio world. The mission of Pass Labs is “to build simple amplifiers that are distortion free and sound as good as possible.” Throughout the years, Pass Labs has forged timeless designs for their amplifiers. Most of them still incorporate a lot of the same components used during the original creations decades ago. With their patented SuperSymmetric technology, the company released the X1000 in 1998. This groundbreaking design paved the way for how Pass Labs develops models to this day. In 2017, Nelson Pass was awarded the Positive Feedback’s Lifetime Achievement to commend his incredible work on amplifier technology. In short, Pass Labs continues to break boundaries for amplifier design, improving all aspects on every release. Overture is a proud dealer of Pass Labs products, selling customers the best speakers from Pass Labs. Interested in purchasing a new Pass Labs component?
